Subject: CVE-Request -- Linux ASLR integer overflow


A bug in Linux ASLR implementation for versions prior to 3.19-rc3 has 
been found. The issue is that the stack for processes is not properly 
randomized on some 64 bit architectures due to an integer overflow.

Affected systems have reduced the stack entropy of the processes by four.

Could you please assign a CVE-ID for this?
